COTTON SEED PRE-PROCESS SECTION


Capacity : 250 M.T.PER DAY

Cotton seed is initially sieved on 3 Seed Cleaners in order to remove unginned bolls, plant contaminants, sand, stones and any other foreign material. This cleaned seed is then passed through the first stage of de-linting which consists of 11 de-linters. It is next followed by a second stage of de-linting consisting of 22 de-linters, to remove the lint from seed. These linters (both first and second) are cleaned and pressed into bales, of either first-cut linters, or second-cut linters.
The de-linted seed is then passed through a safety shaker for separation of ferrous material and is fed into five decorticators. The seed is broken and separated into hulls and meat in this decorticating section. There can be some quantity of seed which might have hulls mixed in it and in order to recover the seed from hulls, this material passes through five hull-seed separators, where the seed is recovered from hulls. The hulls pass through a series of three double drum beaters, where meat particles are separated from hulls. Hulls are collected separately and packed in bags. The meat is fed to the oil mill with the help of a screw conveyor.
